    I got the original recipe from the TV show "Weighing In." I modified it to accomodate my pantry and my allergies. I have tried to indicate the different combinations I've tried and enjoyed.

      I used dried apricots and pecans. I also added an apple and left out the beans (didn't have any). Will make this again.
